My Bucket List

I love writing lists! One of my favorite things to do is write out a list and check off things that I have accomplished. Sometimes I will add things to my list that I have already done just so that I can have the satisfaction of crossing it off my list. For those of you who are wondering, yes, I am a first born and have ALL the first born tendencies in the book.

I also dreams. I actually have a lot of dreams, hope, and aspirations of things that I want to do before I die. Many people call this their “bucket list”. I have been thinking about my bucket list for a long time. One of my blog friends, Mrs. O, inspired me to sit down and write out my own bucket list and track as I accomplish each thing on my list. I finally sat down to write it out, which took way too long. I really feel that today is the perfect day to share this with you, especially after yesterday’s blog.

Please know that this is by no means a complete list. I have so much I want to do. I reserve the right to add to this list at anytime. In no particular order:

Thanks for the link! Your list looks great! I think the best part about them is the excitement in deciding what to do next. I'm glad to have a buddy to travel this journey together. It's always better to have someone to celebrate with!
